"Aani and the Tree-Huggers," "People Who Hugged Trees," "The Last Polar Bear," "Rachel, the Story of Rachel Carson," "S is for Save the Planet" and "Sandy's Incredible Shrinking Footprint"

Those are just a few of the books on the TDSB's "Ecobooks" book list--"Great Books for Teaching Kids In, About, and For the Environment."

Kids "in" and "for" the environment? Er, I'm not sure--is that even proper English?

No matter. As long as the moppets are indoctrinated in the religion du jour (one of them, anyway), everything's copacetic. (Rachel Carson--oh, puh-leeze: her anti-DDT efforts led directly to deaths of millions of Africans who succumbed to malaria. How great would it be if the kids were taught that lesson?)
